    Mobile isn't nearly as big as the console market is. I think you are mistaken by comparing Android games that pay "thousands" to Mario Kart 8 that pays 10's or 100's of millions.

    They probably should have some kind of presence in the mobile market. But I would hate to see Mario Bros on a phone, because that is a lose lose situation where it will be hacked and cannibalized. I would prefer to see new content made specifically for the mobile. However, as everyone was ringing the death bell on consoles before the last upgrade cycle, Sony, Microsoft proved your opinion that consoles are dead and left behind completely wrong.

    Just looked at the balance sheet, and I don't see any debt at all. Although Yahoo Finance shows a PEG ratio of 29! That scared me. However when I see what the expected EPS growth is, it goes from .005 2014 to 1.36 in 2017. That is like 1000% in a few years.

    So does this provide an exceptional opportunity at these low levels, or are the estimates overblown?

    Patrick again,

    $250 console probably isn't much for you. I suggest you fork over and give the Wii U a spin. Buy the Mario Kart 8 and your claims of low quality software will evaporate. The Wii U is mildly less powerful than the Xbox One and PS4.

    How do I make such a silly claim? Because what's on paper isn't the reality of the situation. Marketing to tech heads that they have an 8-core CPU with a mid range graphics card that on paper, blows away the Wii U. However its all about how the developers use the hardware, and so far, they have not been able to do better than a marginal increase over the Xbox 360/PS3. Where as the Wii U is at full potential, and youtube the side by side comparisons, there are hardly any difference in quality between ported games on Wii U and the Xbox.

    You are perpetuating the lies and rumors (maybe you sincerely believe them) that Nintendo hardware is so inferior that they must have re-released the Atari 2600. Its not true.

    Nintendo would never sell, just read a little more about Nintendo please. None of you seem to get it. Oh great just abandon everything for mobile! You would be laughed out of the board room.

    Serious Cat & Patrick

    "I have family and friends with young kids, and if Nintendo had a $149 console with a decent selection of family friendly games, I could see buying that as a birthday/Christmas gift."

    I don't believe you have even tried the Wii U yet. I bought one for $250 for my kids and they love it, and fight over which one gets to use the big tablet controller.

    Nintendo has mobile gaming, its called the best selling 3DS. The 3DS has become the best selling handheld console of all time.

    There is no reason for Nintendo to stop making hardware just because they had a miss on this one. They have made many misses in the past. Remember the power glove? The robot? The 3D game boy thing that made you motion sick?

    Everyone needs to calm down. The Wii U isn't inferior, the Wii was inferior by several factors, but it outsold all other platforms and its still available for sale for $99. The Wii U had a price cut down to $250. Mario Kart 8 has spurred sales in a big way, and so will the new titles coming out such as Super Smash Bros.

    Mobile is not a smart move at all for Nintendo, its low margin and low quality. Amazon Fire sales are dismal, and so are the phone, they are not a threat to Nintendo and neither are start up companies like GLUU because their margins are so low that they teeter on bankruptcy on a daily basis.

    What Nintendo needs to do is start making hardware acquisitions such as the Power PC unit from IBM, and steal some talent from the AMD ranks to develop their own graphics chips.

    When you hold a Nintendo device in your hands you can see the quality, especially in a DS like my son has. Its nicer than any cell phone I've handled. And maybe they can add cell phone usage as a feature on a device.

    Who knows?

    You guys are too hard on Nintendo and to speculate that they should abandon hardware for mobile with no future, is insane.

    Everyone keeps going back 10 years or more which I don't agree with. The market completely reset in 2009, DHS I don't think existed before then, so why would you put a 10 year chart of VIG against DHS?

    Yes, potential. However there isn't any movement in the direction of using it. None what so ever. Potential does nothing for the user.

    what is the point of using next generation hardware to push current generation software?
